well, I dunno; that's what I was trying to do with my Nextel posting the
other day, and it's *STILL* down up here; on top of which my partner has a
CDMA QChat nextel phone and DC doesn't roam for him... *and* while my SMS
to the states works fine, all of *his* SMSs in both directions are delayed
over half an hour; I've already missed at least one good Worldcon event
because for all we pay them every month, they've left us *no* working way
to communicate with one another in real time.

I'm probably flying home via Lenexa; I really feel the need to get in a suit's
face about this; we are *not* paying for this month.

Cheers,

    Start a man a fire, and he'll be warm all night.
     Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
